Thanks for writing to us.
Chemotherapy is recommended for granulosa cell tumor. The types of drugs needed and the number of cycles required depends on the stage of the cancer. After the tumor staging is done, you need to meet a radiotherapist who will guide you further.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
